The experience is elevated at Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Sultanate of Oman. Two hotels await your arrival. Approaching Al Waha, your excitement heightens as a man-made tunnel through the mountain leads you to a sanctuary facing the Gulf of Oman. As a family-focused hotel, Al Waha lives up to its name, with several swimming pools merging to form a serene oasis. Date palms and traditional Dhofari architecture remind you that you are in Arabia.
Lunchtime closes in as you head for the resort's focal point, Al Bandar Hotel. Like its name suggests, this hotel is akin to a town with a mélange of restaurants. After you savour the exquisite Arabian flavours of tender roasted meats at Al Tanoor restaurant, you decide to take home a piece of Oman with the intricately-designed crafts, jewellery and artwork from the gift shop and art gallery.
It's hard to pull yourself away from it all, but Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa is just 20 minutes away from Muscat. You leave knowing that you can always return to Shangri-La within the Sultanate of Oman, for a fun-filled vacation in a relaxed and casual setting.
